GAINESVILLE, Ga. – Gubernatorial candidate and first-term state Senator Michael Williams (R-Cumming) will be the featured speaker at the Lanier Tea Party meeting at the Gainesville Civic Center Thursday (June 15) at 7 p.m.
An ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, Williams was the first elected official in Georgia to endorse Trump’s candidacy and later became co-chair of the Trump campaign in Georgia.
Those who know Williams best were not surprised by his early endorsement of the New York billionaire. The two men have a lot in common.
Williams is a very successful businessman in his own right who once owned a chain of 18 Sports Clips franchises. Also like Trump, Williams has a complete disdain for political correctness and believes establishment Republicans have failed conservatives.
On his website williamsgeorgia.com, he points out that “Georgia has had a Republican Governor for almost 16 years with a Republican controlled House and Senate for over a decade. Yet we have not passed basic conservative legislation. We have yet to pass Tax Reform, School Choice legislation, Constitutional Carry, Spending Cuts, and many other bedrocks of the Republican Party. This will end under Governor Williams – more results, less talk. No excuses!”
Williams platform includes:
- Elimination of the state income tax to be replaced by a state sales tax similar to that in Florida;
- Term limits for all statewide elected office holders;
- Keeping casinos out of Georgia;
- Passing a religious freedom law.
Williams is a first-term senator and CPA who is secretary of the Banking and Financial Institutions Committee, chairman of the Appropriations sub-committee on Fiscal Management and General Government and a member of the committees on Appropriations, Ethics, Finance and Public Safety.
